Overview
Don’t let time constraints keep you from making the trip to Yosemite National Park from San Francisco. A 1-day trip lets you visit the park’s major attractions such as Half Dome, Tuolumne Grove, and El Capitan—and still make it back to the city in time for dinner.
What to Expect
Begin your day with pickup from your select San Francisco hotel or central meeting point. Head out of the city and through historic Gold Rush towns en route to the Sierra Nevada—commentary from your guide makes the 4-hour drive fly by.

Upon arrival, take a hike past some of the oldest and largest redwood trees in the world at Tuolumne Grove (weather permitting). Snap a photo inside a tunneled-out tree, or see how many people it takes to wrap arms around a trunk.

Continue to Inspiration Point for an unbeatable view of Yosemite Valley. Look out for expert rock climbers scaling the world-class cliffs of Half Dome and El Capitan, and in the springtime, see the 2,400 foot-tall (740 meter) cascade of Yosemite Falls.

Spend an hour dining or exploring the park on your own before reconvening with your guide for the return to San Francisco.

Please note: Some itinerary items are weather dependent, and itinerary may be adapted to make the most of Yosemite during different seasons. The giant sequoias are best visited between May and October, as winter ice and snow may prevent access during the rest of the year.

Great day

We had a great time. Our guide jason was fantastic despite the bus breaking down and some of the other guests being an hour late back to the coach! It's a long day but well worth it.

One day not enough

Though this is beautiful national park, one day trip is not enough to enjoy the real beauty of park. It's almost 3 and half hour road trip by bus. We went in April first week and it was autumn so no flowers were seen. You...More

We agree. If you are a national park lover or hiking enthusiast, you should consider an overnight trip to Yosemite (we offer several) where you can explore many of the harder to reach sections of the park. Bear in mind that many of our guests...More
